Should be a howto somewhere on this site. Basically, the pump is timed with internal marks and locked down. Then the engine is set to TDC with a barring tool and a timing pin. Then the pump is bolted down and a spacer installed under the timing lock. Don't forget to remove the barring tool and timing pin before you crank the engine.

At that point you mark the pump for reference for future changes. If you do the 1/8" bump, do it after you mark the pump.

Is your ve pump your swapping in timed? If so, you don't necessarily have to time the old pump, you can just take the old pump out and then time the motor with a barring tool and the timing pin, but be careful with that timing pin, it's just plastic and cheap and will break easily if you happen to go too far. Then you stick the already timed pump in and it is all good.
